Our favorite Austen addict Laurie Viera Rigler has gone all Hollywood on us. The popular author of the best selling Austen inspired novels Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict has created a web comedy series for Bablegum.com called Sex and the Austen Girl based on her two century swapping heroines Courtney Stone and Jane Mansfield. Staring Arabella Field and Fay Masterson, here is a description of the series:
Two women who have inexplicably switched bodies, time periods, and lives — one from Regency England, the other from 21st-century Los Angeles — debate the pros and cons of life and love in today’s world vs. Jane Austen’s world. Sex and the Austen Girl is inspired by the bestselling novels by Laurie Viera Rigler: Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict.
The series premieres on May 17th, 2010. Here is a sneak peek preview to keep you laughing until then. Congrats Laurie. Can’t wait to laugh out loud!
